The Israel Farmers Federation concluded its conference, adopting a resolution demanding that the government abolish a 6,000,000-pound ($16,800,000) debt of the citrus industry.

The resolution also called on the government to allocate $2,000,000 of the U.S. Export-Import Bank’s $100,000,000 loan to the development of the citrus industry. The parley also advocated the setting up of joint labor exchanges for agricultural as well as industrial workers.
